The Diocese of Carlisle is the Church of England in Cumbria

We look after 351 churches and 106 schools, from Barrow in Furness to Bewcastle and Nicholforest, from St Bees Head to Stainmore.

Our mission is, by God's grace to grow God's Kingdom in Cumbria; our vision is, to see our Churches growing Disciples of all ages.

We are working at the five marks of Discipleship: Maturity in faith, expectant Prayer and Worship, Engagement with society, Outreach, Quality of relationships
